Endodontic Overview

Posted by

At the office of Apex Endodontics, we provide state-of-the-art endodontic treatment to restore your oral health and well-being. As skilled providers of care, we utilize state-of-the-art technology and treatment methods to deliver treatment that is both gentle and precise. Our experienced endodontist and office team are committed to keeping you comfortable and informed throughout every step in care.

When a tooth has been severely compromised due to injury, decay or dental disease, it can cause damage that extends beneath the outermost biting surface, into what is known as the dental pulp. The dental pulp contains the core tissues and nerve supply of the tooth, and when a tooth has been damaged, bacteria can seep in and infect the dental pulp. Today, endodontic treatment encompasses a range of services, including root canal therapy, endodontic retreatment, apicectomy and the treatment of cracked, fractured, dislodged or avulsed teeth.  As skilled and experienced providers of care, our goal is to resolve infection, alleviate oral pain and preserve your natural tooth in the dental arch. With advanced specialty training in all aspects of endodontic care, we are well equipped to assess all issues affecting a tooth’s vitality. We’re also experienced and adept in working with instruments that facilitate maximum visualization of the anatomy of your teeth on a microscopic level. With the use of Cone Bean Computed Tomography, we can obtain a complete and accurate 3-D image of the surrounding anatomy so that we can identify any problems and make a precise diagnosis to develop an effective treatment plan.

Our goal is to help you enjoy a lifetime of excellent oral health as we strive to make endodontic treatment a more stress-free and comfortable experience.  By offering the latest safe and controlled options in sedation dentistry, we can also help patients with dental phobias or anxiety about a particular procedure feel relaxed and at ease during care.

At the office of Apex Endodontics, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
